Christmas is coming, and the time is now to get started decluttering your home!
I mean really, the pre-holiday decluttering tips I have for you, aren't really earth shattering to be honest. Mostly I want to tell you how to declutter before the holidays, now!
Even though, it's super easy to say you'll do it after the holidays, don't. Start now. If you don't, you're going to have all the Christmas goodness stacked on top of the current clutter. And trust me, that's not how you want to start the new year.
Start decluttering now, not after Christmas
Have you ever heard the phrase, prepare for the winter in the summer? It means to prepare early. If you want a clutter free home for Christmas, you must declutter well before Christmas.
It's easy to find reasons not to. But, it can also be easy to find reasons to start now. Here are 3 reasons to start decluttering now
- If you wait, you will have more stuff to declutter after Christmas.
- It's harder to make decisions on what to keep, and not keep, the longer you take to decide.
- Decluttering now will save you money on Christmas gifts because you will realize how much you already have, and how little you actually need.
So, yes, I know this time of year is about to get busy. But, any time of year is busy and you will always find a reason NOT to declutter, unless you decide to find more reasons to just do it.
Create a decluttering plan for the holidays
If you don't know what you are doing, it will never get done. Create a decluttering plan. Write it down. Set a date for when and where you will be taking your clutter.
